I feel like the little kid getting left in the dust by all the big kids, trying to get them to slow down a bit. Except this time the big kids are the months that seem to be flying by. How are we already into December and where did November go? (and October and September, for that matter!) I cannot keep up!
Thanksgiving was a blur of friends, days off work, spending time with Brandon and Adeline, and of course some sewing. I had made a dress for Adeline for Christmas, but it is already getting too small for her. So I put it on her for Thanksgiving. She did not last 60 seconds before spitting up all over it. Thanks, girl. So no cute pictures in her special dress, although she still looked adorable.
Over the weekend I got started on actually making my Christmas gifts. I do have a few “back up” ideas in mind in case I don’t finish all of them in time, but I’m hoping not to need that! I will have photos and a pattern review coming soon, but I did make the full and half version of this pattern for two gifts.
And just to add to the craziness, I also took advantage of the holiday sales and bought the Madeline pattern from Romeo and Mae to make another dress for Adeline. I’ll let you know how that turns out.
In the meantime, check out my friend Elizabeth’s blog for a great winter decorating idea.
